iPhone 8 With Curved Screen Could Be Released as Soon as Next Year

Sans home button.

By //Tech

According to the Wall Street Journal, the new iPhone 8 could be releasing as soon as next year. It’s been reported that Apple has been testing out more than 10 different prototypes and some have seen a curved screen with no home button. The report states that the new model will house a 5.8-inch OLED display (instead of a LCD screen) with, of course, higher resolution. With OLED technology, a backlight is not needed, therefore thinner and lighter phones can be created. The new iPhone iteration may also include an embedded home button, as opposed to the current location on the iPhone 7’s design.

Additional changes we may see are glass and metal designs resembling the iPhone 4, an embedded Touch ID sensor underneath the display, and wireless charging. The new upgrades will see a pricier phone than the current iPhone 7, which sells for nearly $700 USD. Apple will most likely decide on one or two out of the prototypes before its launch in 2017. Stay tuned for more details.
